BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- Binghamton University is looking forward to a busy couple of weeks. President Harvey Stenger updated the Binghamton Rotary Club on the status of several ongoing projects Tuesday.
Stenger says the flood damaged Downtown Campus is on schedule to reopen in the middle of August. Students will also move into the two downtown housing complexes within the next couple of weeks.
Binghamton University is also beginning to increase enrollment this fall as part of its SUNY 2020 Plan.
"We have the expected number of students coming here. That will give us about 500 more than we had in the fall. It’s mixed, though. Some are grad students, some are transfer students, some are students who stayed and decided not to drop out," said Stenger.
Stenger says there are also several other possible projects in the works, including a proposal to build an incubator downtown and another to build a Smart Energy Center on the IT Campus.
